and Online (Zoom)

■Theme: Beyond Crises: People, Market, Society - Search for a New Normal Order

The 2023 Japan Forum of Business and Society (JFBS) Annual Conference will be held at Keio University in Japan.  Our theme, “Beyond Crises: People, Market, Society- Search for a New Normal Order,” speaks to reform and sustain strategies as corporations and their management adapt to the challenges of today’s rapidly changing environment, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, climate changes, geopolitical crises, and natural disasters. In order to weather these storms, we believe it is not sufficient to craft temporary countermeasures or improved conventional models, but to generate innovative business/social models by bringing in unconventional ways of thinking and value systems.

We invite scholars and practitioners from various disciplines and sectors to discuss emerging new paradigms in which we need to redefine the relationships among people, market, and society. We especially focus on “crises” and “new normal order,” and discuss various challenges and themes relevant to more sustainable and successful business and society.

Expected themes for submission include, but not limited to:

Human security, Business and human rights, Business and politics, Business and justice, Business and peace, Crises and well-being, Crisis management, Resilience, Supply chain management, Altruism during the pandemic, Business continuity planning & management, New business models, Agile management, Decision making during a crisis, Business and environment, Volunteer management, and so forth.  

General topics on business and society are also welcome!
